Cat found in charity shop sofa after five days


A cat spent five days trapped in a sofa donated to a charity shop before being found by the couple who bought it.

The three-seater settee was given to St Luke’s Hospice charity shop in Grays, Essex, by Pauline and Bill Lowe, both 66, from Corringham.

Ten-year-old Crockett was discovered when the new owners heard “a soft miaow” coming from the furniture.

Mrs Lowe said she had been “devastated” to lose Crockett and the family were “delighted” to have him back.

Charity shop staff took two sofas from the Lowes’ house in York Avenue on 24 March, but one had to be taken apart to get it through the door.
